This IDC Perspective compares the challenges of sustainability, power, and cooling and the need for operational resilience for datacenter operators. As the world's climate changes and large impactful storms become more common, reliable supplies of power, renewable, or carbon based will become more difficult to obtain. This will complicate operational planning for all datacenter operators.

"Weather anomalies are here to stay," says Rob Brothers, program vice president, Datacenter Program at IDC. "Be prepared, and evaluate every possible threat to secure reliable power for your datacenter or your colocation providers' datacenter."
